6 Replies

Greetings, my name is David Gerard,  I primarily handle real estate transactions, I broker as well, and I am looking to get into real estate investment as well.  Primarily looking for low-cost, low-risk properties, and I am also interested in joining an investment club to pool resources.  Thank you for allowing me into your community, hopefully I can provide as much value as I receive.

Welcome aboard the vibrant BP community. You already have some experience and with additional effort, will quickly climb the REI ladder to its pinnacle.

Since you didn't mention a specific REI area of interest I added the below links from three of the most popular niches for your review and selection of one or all.

Simply, bone up on the areas that you need to expand knowledge in such as, Forums, Marketplace, Learn, Network, Analyze and Resources.
